    I also believe it's a Singer reproduction. It was probably made in the 1980s.

    Hi Marilyn,

    I think we can safely say that your sewing machine is of late twentieth century origin, probably 1980's as others have said. Definintely not between 1851 and 1870. The evidence we have is that the 15 model was not made during this time, I believe it was first manufactured during the late 1870's (1879?), also machines of this era didn't have the numbered tension dials and the 15 model didn't get the reverse stitch feature until quite late in it's production. The plastic dial to drop the feed dogs is a feature of the late twentieth century Chinese, Taiwanese etc models.

    The machine in the picture I posted is a late twentieth/early twenty-first century machine.

    I hope this has helped you in your quest for information about your machine.

    I have a 15 made in Taiwan, circa 1980 and she is a lovely machine.
